    Op de melkveebedrijven die deelnemen aan het project ‘Koeien & Kansen’ werd onderzoek uitgevoerd naar de ontwikkeling van bodemvruchtbaarheid. Er was behoefte aan dit onderzoek om in beeld te krijgen of de maatregelen, die worden genomen op de bedrijven om de nutriënten (N en P) op efficiënte wijze te benutten, niet strijdig zijn met het behouden of verhogen van de bodemvruchtbaarheid. Een ander motief voor dit onderzoek is dat een goede bodemvruchtbaarheid van belang is als basis voor een efficiënt gebruik van nutriënten. In dit onderzoek is uitsluitend gekeken naar de ontwikkeling van het organisch stofgehalte van de bodem en van de fosfaattoestand, zoals aangegeven door het P-Al getal. Er is een analyse uitgevoerd van de ontwikkeling in de tijd. Dit werd gedaan voor ‘permanente’ graslandpercelen per bodemtype (zand, klei, veen en löss) en voor percelen waar gras en maïs worden afgewisseld.

    This study was motivated by the puzzlingly localised implementation of available Sustainable Land Management (SLM) practices despite the urgent need to reduce both land degradation and general poverty levels in the western highlands of Kenya. This research aimed to not only unravel reasons for the restricted geographical diffusion of SLM practices but also make concrete contributions to foster the promotion of SLM practices. Four specific research objectives and questions were formulated, and an integrated, multi-scale socio-ecological systems framework designed to address these issues at various levels. At the farming system level, high livelihood diversity was found as households increasingly depend on off-farm income opportunities. Besides, results show low production efficiency (average 40%) across five distinct farm types with important implications on intensification in land use. The off-farm oriented and resource-poor farm types were the least likely to invest in SLM practices on their farms. For the forest ecosystem, the estimated local economic benefits of around US$ 450 ha-1 yr-1 were considerably less than half the forgone returns from agricultural activities if the forest were to be converted. Arguably, continued protection of the Kakamega rainforest is justified because of the unknown value of its rich biodiversity and stored carbon in its system, which does not currently generate local economic benefits. At the landscape level, this study found that Vihiga District has undergone rapid land-use changes in the past 25 years. In particular, there has been a major conversion of forest and bare land to agricultural land use. Results show that productivity of tea and to a lesser extent, vegetables increased but the yields of maize and beans—the most common crops—oscillated around 1 ton ha-1. As a result, per capita food crop production dropped by 28% during the past two decades. Empirical findings demonstrate that high and increasing population pressure on land does not necessarily lead to agricultural intensification. Finally, with stakeholder participation, I evaluate local potentials for initiating collaborative action towards wider promotion of SLM practices in the western highlands of Kenya. A positive correlation (rho = 0.83) was found between stakeholder co-operation and the success level of past SLM projects. Reasonable prospects such as some technology adoption activities and organisation of local actors were established, which are necessary for triggering the transformation process to sustainable state of productivity. Based on synthesis of the key findings presented in this thesis, I conclude that the difficulty of achieving wider geographical diffusion of SLM practices in the study area can be attributed to four main reasons. First, there is a practical challenge to properly target the technologies to the right farming households in order to achieve the greatest impacts. Second, the rampant decrease in productive resources (land, capital and labour) for farm production coupled with low efficiencies in common farm enterprises has created an additional aspect of poverty traps—a ‘maize-centred’ poverty trap—making it difficult for a majority of farmers to invest meaningfully in SLM practices. Third, increasing pressure on land from population growth has failed to stimulate better land management practices and efficient resource use in agriculture possibly because the community attempts to make for the shortfall from off-farm activities or by accessing the almost free forest resources where available in the district. Lastly, the low collaboration level among key stakeholders involved in promotion of various components of SLM practices indicates a thin spread of efforts on the ground and unexpectedly delays an accelerated technological transition process. Therefore, I recommend a paradigm shift to embrace a broader, integrated and multi-stakeholder approach to solving the problem of land degradation in the study area and other similar agro-ecosystems in SSA; an approach that equally promotes improved farm productivity and creates off-farm income opportunities.

    Heathlands in Europe reflect a long history of human activity and use. Through the ages heathlands have been of importance as (semi)agricultural areas, hunting territories and various other uses of mankind. This diversity of use has created a cultural diversity over the whole Atlantic area of Europe, from Portugal and Spain in the south to Norway in the north and from Germany in the east to Ireland in the west. Economy and ecology of heathlands does show us both the diversity in use all over Europe combining this with the newest insights in ecology and the Natura 2000 status most of these heathlands have got nowadays. Central theme is how to cover the costs of maintenance of these heathlands. Is their future in new types of commons, or do other types of land ownership using the revenues of heathland ecosystem services give better opportunities. The editors combine a broad variance in knowledge of heathlands varying from all aspects of ecology, land use, as well as economy.

    This thesis is the result of assessments on the extent of existing resource use and management practices using a Participatory Integrated Watershed Management (PIWM) as a viable approach to promote best soil water conservation (SWC) measures towards more sustainable land use. The study was conducted in two contrasting agro-ecological zones of the north-western highlands of Rwanda, namely; Gataraga and Rwerere in the framework of “Agasozi ndatwa” referred to as PIWM. "Agasozi ndatwa" program is implemented at watershed scale and involves investments from the government in establishing soil and water conservation structures as well as other development related activities. A stratification sampling approach was used in selecting the study area. The first strata consisted of a watershed and the second-level of strata consisted of villages. Two villages with boundaries that nearly coincided with that of the micro-watershed were selected.The studywas started by assessing the ecological and economic sustainability of smallholder farms using the level of nitrogen recycling between farm activities and farm income as indicators. Soil fertility management components including farm inputs and improved farming systems combined with the knowledge on how to adapt these practices to local conditions at field, farm and watershed levels were evaluated. Following a proper participatory assessment of soil and water conservation, a field experiment was conducted to explore the efficiency of 20+ year old slow forming terraces in farmer’s fields. Finally, the impact of PIWM activities on Natural Resource Management (NRM), crops and livestock productivity on farmers’ livelihoodwas assessed and the integration of several policies that are operating simultaneously in the watershed was evaluated.Nutrient balances and flows differed for the two agro-ecological zones due to differences in crop management and the importance of livestock. Positive nutrient balances were found for relatively fertile volcanic soils, but on steep slopes and acidic soils, N, P and K stocks were declining at rates of 8.6, 1.4 and 17.5 kg ha-1 year-1, respectively. Nitrogen recycling between farm activities was low, varying between 1.8 and 6 %, which may decrease the adaptability and reliability of the current farming systems. Integrated Soil Fertility Management (ISFM) component treatments comprising thecombination of fertilizer, FYM and improved seeds significantly increased yields but resulted (i) in a lower Nitrogen Agronomic Efficiency (N-AE) across sites and on relatively fertile foot slopes and (ii) in a lower marginal rates of return (MRR) due to the high cost of seeds and N fertilizer. Slow forming terraces of 20+ year old showed a marked “within” spatial difference in both soil quality and crop yield. The soil in the lower part of the terraces showed as much as 57% more organic carbon content and 31% more available phosphorous than the soil in the upper part. The marked soil fertility gradients indicate that the sustainability of slow-forming terraces is threatened, unless a site-specific fertilizer strategy is developed. Results suggest that an PIWM approach has the potential of improving farmers’ livelihoods and increasing the resilience of a degraded environment. Furthermore, due to PIWM approach, synergy of policies was effective leading to (i) positive impact on the size and composition of livestock, (2) the availability and use of manure, (3) the increase of production of fodder and (4) the reduction of soil loss.

    Presently, peri-urbanisation is one of the most pervasive processes of land use change in Europe with strong impacts on both the environment and quality of life. It is a matter of great urgency to determine strategies and tools in support of sustainable development. The book synthesizes the results of PLUREL, a large European Commission funded research project (2007-2010). Tools and strategies of PLUREL address main challenges of managing land use in peri-urban areas. These results are presented and illustrated by means of 7 case studies which are at the core of the book. This volume presents a novel, future oriented approach to the planning and management of peri-urban areas with a main focus on scenarios and sustainability impact analysis. The research is unique in that it focuses on the future by linking quantitative scenario modeling and sustainability impact analysis with qualitative and in-depth analysis of regional strategies, as well as including a study at European level with case study work also involving a Chinese case study.

    Hoe kunnen veetelers met minder input meer resultaten halen bij snijmaïsteelt? Dat is de centrale vraag van het project “Duurzaam bodembeheer maïs”. De maïsteelt kan echter nadelige effecten hebben voor de bodem door gewasbeschermingsmiddelen en het uit- en afspoelen van nutriënten. Wageningen UR en het Louis Bolk Instituut onderzoeken van 2012 tot 2014 in opdracht van het ministerie van EZ duurzame en praktisch haalbare verbeteringen en vernieuwingen. Teeltsystemen die zorgen voor een gezonde bodem worden daarbij gezien als sleutel tot duurzame teelt. Op drie locaties worden diverse teeltsystemen vergeleken in meerjarige proeven uitgevoerd op zand- en kleigrond. Daarbij wordt onder andere gekeken naar opbrengst, onkruiddruk, bodemstructuur, aanwezigheid van regenwormen, indringingsweerstand, waterinfiltratie, stikstofdynamiek en economische aspecten. De resultaten uit het eerste projectjaar (2012) worden in deze rapportage beschreven.

    The demand for agricultural products (food, feed, fibre, and biomass for other purposes) produced in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) will increase for the coming decades. In addition, the global climate change will largely impact on the agricultural sector in Sub-Saharan Africa. Major challenges for the agricultural sector in SSA are that agricultural production systems depend on resources that are for a large part non-renewable, and that the current agricultural practices in SSA are major contributors to environmental degradation. The Government of the Netherlands addresses food security and sustainable agricultural production in Sub-Saharan Africa. In order to support this process, the Ministry of EL&I has asked for ‘a concept’ to evaluate options for agricultural developments, which are aimed at increasing productivity and improving livelihoods, whilst safeguarding or improving ecosystems. This report presents analyses of yield gaps in Africa, nutrient use and requirements for crop land, and of fresh water production and crop evapotranspiration. The yield gap analysis was based on spatial databases and simulations of potential (irrigated) and water-limited maize yields with a crop growth model. The yield gap in Africa varies largely, ranging from 5 to 60%. The potential improvement for land productivity is large (up to 7 times the actual production levels), even without the help of irrigation. The analysis of nutrient use and requirements for cropland in Africa showed that closing the yield gap requires a higher N and P availability to crops. The analysis of the fresh water production per capita and evapotranspiration from cropland revealed that changes in cropland management, e.g. targeted to increase crop yields and evapotranspiration, can have a dramatic effect on fresh water production and may call for cropping systems that are efficient in water use. From a water use perspective the intensification of agriculture should be assessed at the regional (river basin) level, taking account of the spatial position of the country with respect to water-stressed basins. In the allocation of water resources, priority should be given to the areas where the highest return on water resources can be achieved in terms of types of water use or production systems. The report presents a tool to presented to evaluate strategic plans for the development of agriculture to increase food security in Sub-Saharan Africa. The tool can assist in identifying and evaluating alternative strategies for agricultural intensification in a participatory process. Apart from the Ministry of EL&I, other potential actors and stakeholders in such a process are the Dutch embassies in the pilot countries, governmental planning agencies, the private sector (local and foreign investors), NGOs (local and international NGOs), and knowledge institutes.

    Desire for Greener Land compiles options for Sustainable Land Management (SLM) in drylands. It is a result of the integrated research project DESIRE (Desertification Mitigation and Remediation of Land - A Global Approach for Local Solutions). Lasting five years (2007–2012) and funded within the EU’s Sixth Framework Programme, DESIRE brought together the expertise of 26 international research institutes and non-governmental organisations. The DESIRE project aimed to establish promising alternative land use and management strategies in 17 degradation and desertification sites around the world, relying on close collaboration between scientists and local stakeholder groups. The study sites provided a global laboratory in which researchers could apply, test, and identify new and innovative approaches to combatting desertification. The resulting SLM strategies are local- to regional-scale interventions designed to increase productivity, preserve natural resource bases, and improve people’s livelihoods. These were documented and mapped using the internationally recognised WOCAT (World Overview of Conservation Approaches and Technologies) methodological framework, which formed an integral part of the DESIRE project. The DESIRE approach offers an integrated multidisciplinary way of working together from the beginning to the end of a project; it enables scientists, local stakeholders and policy makers to jointly find solutions to desertification. This book describes the DESIRE approach and WOCAT methodology for a range of audiences, from local agricultural advisors to scientists and policymakers. Links are provided to manuals and online materials, enabling application of the various tools and methods in similar projects. The book also includes an analysis of the current context of degradation and SLM in the study sites, in addition to analysis of the SLM technologies and approaches trialled in the DESIRE project. Thirty SLM technologies, eight SLM approaches, and several degradation and SLM maps from all the DESIRE study sites are compiled in a concise and well-illustrated format, following the style of this volume’s forerunner where the land is greener (WOCAT 2007). Finally, conclusions and policy points are presented on behalf of decision makers, the private sector, civil society, donors, and the research community. These are intended to support people’s efforts to invest wisely in the sustainable management of land – enabling greener drylands to become a reality, not just a desire.

    Land is serving as a basis for the production of food, feed, fibres, wood, bio-energy, for biodiversity, recreation and many other goods and services ecosystems provide. Additional to that, land can also be used for infrastructure, houses etc., making no direct use of natural resources, but of the physical land structure. While some resources and ecosystem services can be delivered simultaneously, others are mutually exclusive, and therefore tend to compete for land. Competing claims is a notion that different and/or excessive claims are made on land that may jeopardize its sustained use. Increasing demand for food and energy in the world leads to further intensified use of agricultural land or to the transformation of non-agricultural land into productive agricultural land, with negative consequences for the environment and biodiversity. The objective for this report was to review global and regional market and policy trends governing land use change and competing claims and to explore the role of local power relations and perceptions of stakeholders for competing claims.

    Een boer die zijn bodem duurzaam beheert, zorgt ervoor dat het organische stofgehalte, de bodemvruchtbaarheid en -structuur goed blijven en dat er voldoende bodemleven is. Dat is de voorwaarde om over honderd jaar nog een goede productie van de grond te halen. Zijn boeren al bezig met duurzaam bodembeheer of kost het ze te veel geld om de benodigde maatregelen te nemen?

    Aaltjes veroorzaken nog steeds grote productieverliezen in het zuidoostelijk zandgebied. Er is kennis genoeg om dat te voorkomen, maar die is nog niet breed opgepikt door de praktijk. Maar niet alleen voorkomen van schade is belangrijk, verhogen van de bodemgezondheid is zeker zo waardevol, zo blijkt uit onderzoek.

    Zware machines verpesten de bodemstructuur in de akkerbouw. In de veehouderij komt bij gras scheuren een grote hoeveelheid nitraat vrij. Dit zijn maar twee voorbeelden van ongewenste effecten van maatregelen op onze bodem. En dat terwijl de maatschappij juist verwacht dat boeren hun bodem zó beheren, dat ze ook diensten voor de samenleving kunnen leveren en dat altijd kunnen blijven doen. Het is tijd voor een duurzamer bodembeheer.

    Wageningen UR (University & Research centre) en het Louis Bolk Instituut hebben in opdracht van het ministerie van Economische Zaken, Landbouw en Innovatie (EL&I), voorheen ministerie van LNV, een visie opgesteld over duurzaam bodembeheer. Ook worden bouwstenen aangedragen voor een kennisagenda. Op basis hiervan kan het beleid prioriteiten stellen voor onderzoek en kennisdoorstroming. Duurzaam bodembeheer in de landbouw draagt bij aan diverse dimensies van duurzaamheid: economie (inclusief voedselvoorziening), natuur (inclusief biodiversiteit), milieu, waterhuishouding, klimaat (adaptatie en mitigatie) en welzijn van de mens (ondernemer, consument, burger en recreant). Om het begrip duurzaam bodembeheer concreet te maken, zijn in dit rapport specifieke doelen die met het bodembeheer worden nagestreefd, geformuleerd: de bodembeheerdoelen. Sommige doelen zijn gesteld vanuit het perspectief van de ondernemer, andere hebben een bredere maatschappelijke waarde.
